Brazilian Colloquialisms, Sayings, and Slang #92

Nóis é pobre mas a gente se adiverti - We be poor but we has fun

The sentence “nós somos pobre mas a gente se diverte” (we are poor but we have fun) in “improper” Portuguese in reference to a country bumpkin/lower class Portuguese dialect. Kind of reminiscent of “we make our own fun” (ish).
